We set off at 4am and freezing 3 degrees. We know that tomorrow very strong winds from the Black sea are coming and want to get south before. We go fast on the Smooth shoulder and take minimum Stops. At noon we already had 200 km in perfect cycling conditions when heavy rain starts. Traffic has become less and the ride is relatively safe but we decide against night riding. Just in the last daylight we find a Motel after 314 km.
